Jack Perdu, a shy, ninth grade classics prodigy lives with father on the Yale University campus. Smart and introverted, Jack spends most of his time alone, his nose buried in a book. But when Jack suffers a near fatal accident, his life is forever changed.

His father sends him to a mysterious doctor in New York City--a place Jack hasn''t been since his mother died there eight years ago. While in the city, Jack meets Euri, a young girl who offers to show him the secrets of Grand Central Station. Here, Jack discovers New York''s Underworld, a place where those who died in the city reside until they are ready to move on. This, Jack believes, is a chance to see his mother again. But as secrets about Euri''s past are revealed, so are the true reasons for Jack''s visit to the Underworld.

Masterfully told,The Night Touristweaves together New York City''s secret history and its modern-day landscape to create a highly vivid ghost world, full of magical adventure and page-turning action.
